1 avocado
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 fresh plum tomato, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeño pepper, optional

Cook beans according to package instructions. Drain and run under cold water to cool. Place cooled beans and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped but not puréed. Transfer to a medium bowl and add avocado, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Mash until evenly blended. Stir in tomato and jalapeño, if using. Keep chilled until ready to serve.

Slightly sweeter than the canned variety you might be used to, green garbanzo beans have a fresh flavor similar to peas. Garbanzo Beans are an excellent source of several cardio-protective nutrients including fiber, folate and magnesium. They also are an excellent natural source of zinc and copper, two minerals that are essential for the development and function of immune cells. Legumes like green garbanzo beans are loaded with fiber and protein, both of which help increase satiety. In addition the protein and fiber in these beans can also help decrease insulin levels.

Avocadoss, due their high levels of folate, offer numerous benefits for women with PCOS. Including improved digestion, natural detoxification, and osteoperosis prevention. This recipe is another nutrient rich addition to your “Food as Medicine” arsenal
